That's assuming they actually get around to making them. I know they are notorious for putting up products on their website that they never get around to producing. My only other option for this round, or even a 6.5x47 Lapua, in a bolt action would to be custom. Thanks
Not really, you can buy a savage 6.5x284 factory (Palma, BR or Fclass rifles) and set it back and rechamber to either the Creedmoor or 6.5x47.
They sell for about $950 (Northlander on www.savageshooters.com
) and $175 for rechamber.
Saw a super nice custom 6br there for sale (PAHog was the seller)at $1200 with a 12 twist barrel and nice stock. Sell the barrel for $200-250 and buy new blank for $275 and chamber $175 and good to go with a complete custom rig. Or keep the barrel and just add another, as you can install/change them yourself with a simple barrel vise, wrench and go/ no go guages(under $100)
As for the Rugers, you will not see any of them on the firing line at serious comps. Enough said on that.
